Xbox One X will equally not be a giant factor when it comes to recovering Xbox One sales, it's a premium product. 20% of PS4 sales are the Pro, and that's a device that's 48% more expensive then the PS4, while the X is literally twice the price of the S. The market for expensive more powerful consoles isn't big enough to be anything more then a supplement.

Whilst accurate... One thing to keep in mind is that the base Playstation 4 was still selling stupidly well.

The Xbox One S isn't. So it wouldn't be hard to imagine for the Xbox One X to have a more favourable sales ratio... But it is unlikely to be a game changer due to overall higher costs anyway.

PC users enjoy differnt things than console users.... a game like CS-GO is pretty popular on the pc, but would it sell well on a console?

Its way to early to assume PUBG will get 10m on the xbox platform alone, or turn things around for xbox.

Counterstrike never sold well on console. Well. Not as well as PC. Being an eSport kept it selling on PC.

PUBG is getting allot of attention... If Microsoft can secure it as an exclusive... It might give them a slight push.

I doubt pubg will do much. Most console players aren't even aware of it. Most console players are playing or waiting for destiny 2, cod ww2, Star Wars battlefront 2, and whatever other big third party multiplat game this holiday.

Second, the S has been on a downward decline all year, I don't see how X will help any at $500 with no real exclusives.

Third, Sony has exclusive marketing for all the year's biggest third party games. Slightly better resolution isn't gonna help much at this point in the generation. We're only a couple years or so from next gen hardware.

Fourth, even by some miracle they overtake Sony in the us, however unbelievable that sounds, by January PS4 will be around 70-71m sold WW next to Xbox 1's 33-34 m. Nearly a 40m unit gap.

I also foresee Xbox One sales surpassing the PS4 sales for the United States before the end of 2018.

.... theres like a 3m gap? and its just growing and growing.

I dont see Xbox One closeing the gap, the XOX hasnt suddenly made xbox a more popular or selling brand.

Exclusive wise things still look dire for the xbox, both in 2017 and 2018 vs the PS4.

Reminds me of Nintendoom stuff.  "They'd have to completely stop making money for 17 years before going bankrupt"



"You should be banned. Youre clearly flaming the president and even his brother who you know nothing about. Dont be such a partisan hack"

As long as my 2 Xbox One X's preorders are fulfilled, I'm good. I don't care how it sells - I'll be happy with my units regardless.

Team Xbox all the way!!!

With 4k booming i wont be suprised it does better than i am expecting. Gamers forget PS2 and PS3 came out the gates very expensive. Price isnt the issue with the X. In fact its priced quite well. Considering last gen we would pay similar for a slim model version with no benefits to the hardware at all. The industry will look at the X as the lastest Slim machine and over time as the price reduces it will sell even better due to its value.

PS3? Yes. PS2? Nah. $500 is in a boat by itself - whether in 2017 or the year 2000. The PS2 was hardly "very expensive". Beyond that, the PS2/3 weren't generation refreshes.

As for the latest "slim machine", it isn't being marketed like that and anyone jumping on the bandwagon knows that isn't what it is. It'll go down as what it is - an iterative console packing the biggest punch for the rest of the gen, but at a premium price.

I don't see Xbox One taking the lead in US by the end of the year. By the end of the next year if everything goes great maybe.

I don't think they'll ever really regain the lead, the longer they are behind the harder it gets.

Well, it's not targeting me in the slightest, nor my kids, or my wife... What is the universal appeal of PUBG? It will find a place next to CoD, Fifa/Pes and Battlefield, but it's no Minecraft or GTA.

So you're saying cod/fifa is for hardcore gamers.....lol. Again, just cause somethimg doesn't appeal to you doesnt mean it can't be mainstream. Just cause the recent cod games don't interest me in the slightest, doesn't mean that they aren't still popular, consistently being the bestselling game of each year.

Perhaps I misused the term hardcore, I meant the core, existing market. It won't bring in new customers, only provides an alternative to the existing active multiplayer crowd. It's not a system seller imo.

Yeah, the PS2 was not expensive at all, it launched at $299 and was cut to $199 very quickly. That entire gen was shockingly cheap when compared to the two that have followed.

I'm pretty sure somebody who puts that in their sig can take it being quoted back at them without having a nervous breakdown.
Enough of the special snowflake protection racket. As demonstrated by theirs responce, the OP is cool with it.
If anything, I would question why anybody could have that as a sig and nobody ever comments upon it in any way.
I was going to mention it myself before I saw it already came up. 

You should have left that alone

 

Why was he moderated for this?  Sounds like commentary on a couple of previous posts.  The snowflake stuff isn't very nice, but moderation worthy?  Really?
